It looks like this planned event will commence shortly after 10:30 UTC on 18 July (following hardware set-up by the crew) and will conclude around 21:20 UTC on 19 July.

Very strong carrier on 145.8 on last pass but no modulation. It did allow me to check my Doppler corrections, so all was not waisted.

That last pass the SSTV tones were audible and the sstv program got sync .As it was just above the horizon it wasnt long enough however it is now working

Looking forward to the next pass that will be directly overhead

Should be a good signal into ZL right now.

At 10 degree elevation in Sydney noise still too high to get a picture.

I believe that another SSTV special event has been planned for mid December by the Russian crew. No date announced yet so be prepared for the unexpected on 145.800 FM.

Just remember the mode used will be PD120.
With MMSSTV right click on any mode and then select PD120 mode from the list and then leave the mode selection set on auto.
